Fix Cracked Neck Heel

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a pointy 1983 Electra Dynasty as a restoration/learning project. It was sadly abused. Among the many repairs that it needs is a cracked heel.


I sanded all the poly and black color from the back of the maple heel. I'm looking for suggestions on how to fix this. Should I spread the crack a bit and try to inject thinned Titebond, epoxy, or CA glue?

The crack extends a bit left of the sanded area, but I'm not too concerned about that if I can glue most of it.

I may also drill-out, dowel-fill, and put threaded inserts in place of the attachment holes (if I can find suitable black oval-head machine screws).

Thanks in advance!
